Policy 81

Policy 81

Policy #81 (Use of Teaching Materials in a UBC Credit Course) We are pleased that the Board of Governors has recently approved a policy that
we believe supports instructors in what is, and will continue to be, a rapidly
changing learning environment. Policy #81 (Use of Teaching Materials in a UBC
Credit Course) has four core elements:

1. It confirms that teaching materials are owned by the UBC instructors who
create them.

2. It supports, but does not require, sharing and collaboration by enabling UBC
instructors to use and revise the teaching materials developed by their UBC
colleagues in UBC credit courses without the administrative burden of seeking
and recording explicit permissions.

3. It encourages, but does not require, UBC instructors to share their teaching
materials freely and openly beyond the borders of UBC using open source
licensing.

4. It recognizes that, in certain situations, UBC instructors may prefer that
their teaching materials not be used across UBC, and therefore enables them to
restrict such use.
